  • At first I thought this was going to be another "being a child star messed him up and he got addicted to drugs and self-destructed". But no. He got sick while traveling. And probably could have been treated relatively easily today.

  • I used to work at the home where Glynis Johns lives (she played the mother in merry poppins). It’s an old folks home in West Hollywood, and like many old folks homes made for somewhat wealthy families, it only serves the purpose of making irresponsible wealthy people feel good about abandoning their relatives there. The place had 4 workers, a lady, her husband and brother and another lady. The four of them were what I could only describe as slaves. They were Philippino immigrants who didn’t receive payment and seldom left the building. They all shared a small apartment (the size of one of the rooms meant for a single occupant, but not as well kept) but most nights they slept on mattresses on the floor of the living room as they worked 24/7. Instead of pay, they were allowed to live there and eat some of the food they cooked for the residents. This was about a year/year and a half ago. I only briefly met Glynis as I worked in a separate part of the building, she was suffering from cancer and couldn’t do much, her attention span was pretty brief, and her only source of joy was when every once in a while someone would play the piano.

  • A real shame Matthew Garber died so young. He looked like a promising actor in Mary Poppins, when he and Karen Dotrice (Jane Banks) were going to the bank with David Tomlinson (George Banks), playing their father. “But it’s my tuppence!” When as Michael Banks, Garber wanted to feed the birds. RIP 🙏

  • What a beautiful memorial to an astounding young man & child actor, who died much to young! How sad to die at such a young age. Just watched Mary Poppins again w/ grandsons for probably the 500th time 😂but the two child actors were absolutely an intricate part of that movie. They were so adorable in this movie & great acting on both of their parts! I am so glad Walt Disney honored him, so deservingly, in such a extraordinary way! Thank-you for this great video! May he Rest In Peace!❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕❤️💕

  • I didn't know Matthew Garber had died so young. A sad ending indeed. I believe Karen Dotrice is still alive, and I had privilege of seeing her in her final professional acting role, live on stage as Desdemona to James Earl Jones' OTHELLO in 1981. Looking over your videos, I wonder how you've escaped doing Bobby Driscoll, who played several important roles for Disney including Johnny in SONG OF THE SOUTH, Jerry in SO DEAR TO MY HEART, Jim Hawkins in TREASURE ISLAND, and the voice of Peter in PETER PAN (he also did live-action film of Peter's movements used for reference by the animators). He also died quite young, under tragic circumstances.
